Due to technical difficulties all previous names except for mine have been eliminated and all future names are invalid, therefore I am the defacto WINNER of this game!!! RIGHT George. That is right isn't it?!!! Come on George. PLEASE! PLEASE! PLEASE! I want to win. I want to win. You have beautiful blanks. I CAN'T WAIT to win! ME! ME! ME!
Hahahah, technical difficulties...? so is that what you call it...? I reckon you are suffering from a bad dose of not wanting to spend money and simply ordering what you are so passionate about before you have a heart attack, is it because I have put lately lots of new blanks on my web store...? I'm not done yet, I have a good dozen types that will be showing there in the next couple of days:biggrin::wink:

What a teaser, huh...?

:beer:

Cheers
George

I thought this morning I was going to be an "office accident". There is someone that truly hates another coworker. (Before AlanKulwicki7 says it, I am not the one this person hates) Well I put the "hated" person as the other one's wall paper on their computer while they were in a meeting.

Needless to say I am walking carefully around the office today (and yes I am laughing about it).

My boss is across the country (3 hour time difference), so I did call him this morning from a coworkers desk phone. I mean he did need to wake up 4AM their time.

:beer:

Oh man, that is nasty, you've got far to much free time on your hands...!:biggrin::wink:

Cheers
George

I'm in, but must admit that I miss the trivia. Here is one that I finished with wood "from your stables", as you would say. Guess that wood :biggrin:

:monkey:
That one is Olive wood, done very nicely, congrats.

And while you miss the trivia, I understand that and as I said on my thread announcing the new rules for Mr.A games, after this one run for a little while, I may return with the old style and mix thing a bit, so don't worry.

Cheers
George

Now can you give me the pack # and the blank? I checked your website and the pic is still up. No cheating either — I know you can look at my order :biggrin::biggrin:

The pack is the #137 034_15678f19-912a-461a-8a72-7c9c405a61da_1024x1024.jpg and the blank you used on that pen has to be the first blank from the left, the only one with a natural curved flaw and curved grain that grown around the edges of that flaw, a common phenomenon in Olive wood...!

So Sir, what else would you like to know...?:biggrin::wink:

Cheers
Georg

Impressive! Indeed, you have won the battle of wits, which reminds me of one of my favorite movie scenes of all time: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3EkBuKQEkio

Is it too late to get in? If not, I’m in.

:monkey:
I've got the "monkey" so you are in...!

Is not too late, the date and time the game is close for entry names are on my first post and it says 5:00pm on 16/11/17 and as I saw your post and made the reply, it is now 12:45 Afternoon so another 4 hours and a bit left.

Cheers
George

Hahahah, close but not quite, I would be saying, "Never go in against George when OLIVE wood is on the line" now, that is a different story...!

Closing time to new participants...!

Ok peoples,

It's 5:00 O'clock somewhere, here is one of the places where that time does apply so, no new participants will be accepted...!

The rest of the participant names will be in the hat very shortly and I will ask very soon my for lovely wife Merissa to pick the winner until then be on standby...!:biggrin::confused::confused::confused:

And the winner is...!

Not so fast folks, you know me, I like to squeeze every bit of excitement out of each of you so, at this moment the only thing I will reveal is that his name is Chris and he is a new member.

Now you need to see my poor quality video to find out who that person is, and who will take the AU$100.00 gift voucher from Mr. A game #47

I will come back later...!:biggrin:

Cheers

Finalising the winner announcement of game #47...!

Well, is time that I make an official announcement of the winner of game #37, Merissa picked your piece of paper mate, lucky you, you got yourself AU$100.00 to spend at my web-store, congratulations coulcd (Chris) you are having a great start as a new member...!

There were a respectable number of participants 43 to be exact, this may have been the highest number of participants I ever had in one of this games and for that, I thank you all, new and older members, my thank you to all of you...!:wink:

I know, I know, not everything was perfect but this was my first time trying this new format, there are lessons to be learnt, one is that is no real need to have more than 2 days (48 hours) for the interested members to post their interest, the other is that my videoing capabilities stink, other may apply, I will have a little more time to consider them all but, if any of you have some comments/suggestions on how you think this game went or should have been, I'm all ears...!:smile:

Mr. Chris, a PM will be going your way with the voucher code and some instructions....!

Cheers
George

Thanks everyone, George for running the contest, and of course Merissa for pulling my name out. I'm really looking forward to turning some of George's fantastic blanks. The toughest part now is deciding which ones to get!
